WiSense Publications

WiSense Publications/Papers Produced in Year 5

This document presents the publications associated with WiSense during 2013. There are 197 articles published or in press during 2013.  The vast majority of these publications are reporting on research findings associated with project milestones and deliverables.

The compilation below is divided by research team within the project, beginning with the PI.  The papers are sequentially numbered by research group within the project.  There are now some 800 publications associated with WiSense, in addition to dozens of theses.  These publications also include several books and more than a two dozen book chapters.

The team leader is identified with each group entry.  There are some twelve teams, each headed by a professor at one of either uOttawa, McMaster, Queen’s, or uWaterloo.  Where relevant, the material is organised in the following order: books, book chapters or collaborative works, refereed journal papers, refereed conference papers, and non-refereed conference papers.  Awards and key note/invited papers are flagged where relevant.

Note that in Year 5 two professors left the project, one to accept a Canada Research Chair at a university outside of Ontario and the other departed for health reasons.  They are noted at the end of this section.
